La Clarté de Haut-Brion
2016 La Clarté de Haut-Brion has a beautiful pale yellow colour with green highlights.
The nose is very delicate, with white flower and spicy nuances.
The wine is smooth from the very first on the palate,
becoming more rich and fruity as it develops into a fine aftertaste.
The Sémillon influence is dominant in this very attractive Clarté de Haut-Brion.
Despite a winter and a spring marked by complicated climatic conditions – abundant rain and temperatures below seasonal averages – flowering took place with an almost miraculous homogeneity.The great drought of the summer ended with a rainy season in mid-September that was very beneficial for the end of the maturity cycle. In October, no rain came to disrupt our harvest.The freshness of the nights, combined with the warm days, allowed to develop wines rich in color but also fresh and fruity. Paradox or miracle of nature? We would rather think it is the combination of human effort and, in particular, once again, the exceptional terroir.
